Hello,

What you probably have is a very well known problem with the optical block. As it covers the screen, it will turn everything else greenish/yellow.

The optical block is very commonly replaced and an expensive repair, but the extended warranty (in place for all these TV's regardless of purchase date) on these sets is expired or about to expire. I would urge you to call Sony (1.800.222.SONY) immediately to try to get assistance, and to see if the warranty is up on it.

Hope this helps you...

Sony tv kds-r60xbr1 has yellow tint


Sorry to hear this, but your optical block has failed. Sony replaced a ton of these under warranty and then extended the warranty on these SXRD sets so they could replace many more. They even replaced the sets with LCD sets after a class action law suite. This was a "black eye" for Sony TVs and they stopped making the SXRD sets. Your set is vintage 2006 and there is no longer a warranty. You could replace the optical block with a rebuilt one, but the cost would be about the same as getting a new 60" LCD. I would suggest you do the latter.

Yellow tint on screen


You have a defect in the optical engine ***'y. It's not worth the cost of a $1000 or so repair usually. So sorry.

Yellow tint


I had the same problem (although I have the 50 inch version of the TV). It wasn't the bulb. The optical block had to be replaced.

KDS-R50XBR1 has a yellow hue in the lower right hand corner of the screem


Hi JimmyDeps

If there is a yellow hue I would guess that this a LCD TV right ?

Which means that the blue LCD has gone and will have to be replaced.

It's definitely your VCR that is causing the problem. Move your VCR, if you don't get any results you need to send it to repair.

Yellow spots


I have no suggestions but I am having the exact problem, yellow haze in the top right corner of the screen with a yellow line running down to the bottom of the screen. I guess we need to call tech support.
